Oh my, you've broken open my subject. That is a fantastic song by old Clapton, and definitely a top contender, easy no problem. Mostly because of the personal meaning he has behind it.

I make entire mix cds people say sound like I would kill myself to, so heh, Joe knows his depressing music.

Bright Eyes - A Line Allows Progress, A Circle Does Not
Cursive - The Martyr
Death Cab for Cutie - Tiny Vessels
Neil Young - Out on the Weekend
Pedro the Lion - Amazing Love
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Modern Romance
Alkaline Trio - Blue in the Face
Gary Jules - Mad World
Sean Lennon - Mystery Juice
Postal Service - Iron and Wine
Flogging Molly - The Son Never Shines (On Closed Doors)
Anything by Sinatra can also be incredibly sad when played in the right context as well.

Okay... gone overboard.

I hate country, but I have to admit, that song gets me every time I hear it played.

Indeed, Tears in Heaven is a sad, yet excellent song. This is coming from a metal head whose favorite albums include Metallica's "...And Justice for All" and Ozzy's "Tribute."

better than you said:
Postal Service - Iron and Wine

hey man just so you know, Iron and Wine is a band, and they covered a postal service song called "such great hights," a very pretty song, both versions, but i'd go with the Iron and Wine version for the sadness. that's probably what you were thinking of.

Dude, thanks. my girlfriend sent that to me and I just assumed it was an unreleased acoustic version. Much appreciated, I'll have to check more of them out.
